Pokemon Quest has been out for just over half a year. It’s easy to forget, but there’s a mobile version in addition to the Switch release. Sensor Tower is taking a closer look at the mobile side of things today to see how it’s performed.

Since launching last June, Pokemon Quest has seen 10 million installs globally. It has also generated roughly $9.5 million on the App Store and Google Play.

The latest and 10th Fishing Tourney is now live in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

This time around, the event is taking place in Lost Lure Creek, and will again require players to catch as many tourney fish as they can. These can then be exchanged for in-game trophies and prizes. The necessary fish types are pond smelt, dace, and salmon.

The event is set to last until January 29th, with players able to redeem for rewards until January 30th. Images for the event can be viewed below.

Cygames has announced that a period of forced maintenance will take place for Dragalia Lost on January 28th, but a gift is being given to players in exchange.

According to the developer, the downtime is taking place in order to adjust the specifications for both getherwings and summons. Players just starting up the game for the first time will now be guaranteed a 5-star adventurer summon in their first set.

Current players of the mobile title will also receive a free 5-star summon voucher, as long as they have already performed their first summon.

The full maintenance notes can be viewed below.

The latest Grand Conquest battle has started in Fire Emblem Heroes. As always, the battle consists of three rounds, each of which lasts two days.

Pokemon GO is doing better than ever. After a rocky launch, the game has seen an increase in player engagement as well as consistent revenue. It also helped inspire one of Switch’s first Pokemon entries, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee.

Speaking with Business Insider, Niantic CEO John Hanke noted that Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are very pleased with Pokemon GO as well as Pokemon: Let’s Go. Apparently the two sides are looking for more “synergies” between the mobile release and the core franchise. “We’ve benefited in a lot of ways,” Hanke said.

In 2018, Pokemon GO managed to receive a “regular pace of updates.” Hanke mentioned that this will continue in 2019.
